Directed by Rachel Talalay. Written by Talalay and Michael De Luca. Starring Robert Englund, Lisa Zane, Breckin Meyer, Shon Greenblatt, Lezlie Deane, Ricky Dean Logan and Yaphet Kotto.
Plot: 10 years from now all the children and teens in Springwood are dead except John, who Freddy uses to get to more kids.
Maggie (Zane) works as a therapist outside of Springwood. She and her teenage patients have nightmares and the Doc (Kotto) tells her that this means something, but she doesn’t agree. Then, John (Greenblatt) shows up at the center and doesn’t remember who he is, but he does have a newspaper clipping from Springwood in his pocket. In an attempt to jog his memory, she decides to take him to Springwood herself. Secretly though, three of the troubled youths Maggie works with have stowed away in the van and they all wind up in Springwood where Fredd can now get to them.
With classic lines like, “Every town has an Elm Street,” it’s not surprising that this one surpasses the one that came before it. Sure, there’s some whack-a-doodle rules once again. Like, in this one apparently Freddy had “Dream Masters” grant him his power. Like, what? Still, the innovation was really cool in this one. The ending was good. And it was quite funny in parts.
I suppose I could list my favorite movies here, but instead I'll give you a strange glimpse into what makes me TaraRomero.
1. My favorite place in the world is Atlantic City. The food, the smells, the beach - I love it all.
2. I am particularly good at crafting. Especially scrapbooking and cross-stitch.
3. I am mixed. My dad is black and my mom is white. I'm very proud of both sides of myself.
4. My favorite food is either the cheesesteak or the hoagie. Not the sub, not the grinder, the hoagie. Totally different experience.
5. I have a number of pen pals I write snail mail to. We exchange stickers and little gifts sometimes, too. I have an extensive sticker collection.
6. I just reconnected with my father after 15+ years. It's going great so far. I've missed him.
7. My brother is my best friend, hence the reason we do this together.
8. I don't have a favorite book. I like too many to have a favorite. But Paul Zindel is my favorite author. Stephen King and Jane Austen are close seconds. I know, eclectic.
9. I'm not very religious at all. I consider myself agnostic.
10. I would say that my most prized possessions are my dogs, but I don't consider them possessions. I consider them people. They are my people.
